look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

The beer pours a nice bubbly and creamy head that dissipates somewhat quickly but still leaves a lot of lacing and leaves a film on the top of the beer. The beer itself is a clear orange but with some chill haze that is still see through. The beer color also appears to have slight brown notes. The beer smell is nothing short of divine. The hop notes consist of sweet orange with a bit of grapefruit and mango. Surprisingly, there also appears to be a slight green onion note. The beer taste is similar to the smell but with stronger green onion note and a much stronger grapefruit note. The sweet orange and mango notes are still there but more subdued. There also appears to be a pine resin note in the aftertaste. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with low carbonation and a very smooth feel. The taste is bitter but not too much. Overall, the beer is another fine addition from Trillium and worth getting at least once.

A-Pours a mildly hazed orange. More chill haze than anything else. The head birthed from the pour is thin but dense and slightly frothy. It leaves sticky lacing.

S-Pretty spectacular aroma. I initially get a bunch of fruity, exotic hop-notes along with a noticeable green onion aspect. Mango, marijuana, garlic, melons. The hoppiness hits all ends of the spectrum but they seem to balance out well.

T-The specifics of the nose are all present yet they melt into one another. Quite a hop concoction. It has a very earthy flavor that I think began with that green onion/garlic portion I found in the nose, I love it. The fruity hoppiness is brimming with guava, mango, melon and papaya...yes, that's specific but these flavors are quite exotic and very concentrated. Citrus and grass as well.

M-Has plenty of body to it. Hop resins are present. Just a tickle of alcohol. Softer carbonation but that may be from the pouring median. Modest bitterness; it's clearly bitter but not excessive.

O-Ho Hum, another Trillium offering that tastes like it was consumed the cupped hands of Zeus. Love grabbing growlers from these boys; the beer is always delicious and the employees are cool beans.

The beer pours a nice golden, orange hue with a white foam head. Nose is pure mosaic; tropical, floral and some earthy tones. Taste follows suit with a light white wine presence, almost Nelson like. Good mouthfeel with a bit less carbonation than I was expecting. While FPPA and C St are above this IMO, this is still a solid beer that I wouldn't mind seeing in the regular lineup.
